    calling all street racers

    To everyone who has raced on the streets (which is pretty much every one of us at some point or another), please take heed:

    I know some amount of SRT-4 bashing is bound to ensue (though there is a WRX in the background of one of the snapshots), but remember this can happen to any driver in any car if the driver is reckless. Please, keep the racing off the streets. If you really wish to hurt yourself, please do it off public roads where you cannot potentially hurt innocents. These rules also apply to me

    same goes for conversing, looking at the radio, talking on the phone or doing anything other than driving.

    This is exactly the reason why I hate street racers and why I bash on them (though I've been doing better about it lately), it is not acceptable in any way, shape, or form. Of course, this could happen with a tire blow out as well, but your chances of an accident increase almost exponentially with increased rates of speed, especially so when racing or being careless.

    Be safe people. The worst part about this is the potential to ruin OTHER peoples lives. Every time you run a street race ANYWHERE, especially the free way you risk your own life, and the life of everyone else withing a good distance of you.

    It's a selfish action, and it's retarded to think otherwise. Keep it at the track, don't be stupid.

    Heide I'm starting to think that thread started by you... YOU TROLL!

    You certainly are referencing the thread more than anyone, single handedly responsible for rendering that thread viral...

    I work on spreadsheets most of the day. I live a some what boring life, and small things bring me great job =).

    My 4eat just had it's idler arm replaced. The steering wheel still has a few inches of give. It's not racing anything but maybe a tractor at this rate unless their is a boat being towed on both.

    I personally would rather see street racers then women driving 60 mph putting on make up, or business men eating full meals in their car while reading the newspaper. Oh yeah and also old people. They are far to dangerous for the roads.
